7/7/69 also struck me as a standout show, especially compared to shows the few previous days.
Some of the other highlights of that summer:

http://www.archive.org/details/gd69-06-27.sbd.samaritano.20547.sbeok.shnf - very strong Star, lots of country tunes

http://www.archive.org/details/gd1969-08-03.sbd.miller.30652.sbeok.flac16 - sloppy and a bad mix, but one of the most jammed-out shows of '69

http://www.archive.org/details/gd1969-08-23.sbd.2196.sbeok.shnf - very solid show, trying out some new songs

http://www.archive.org/details/gd69-08-30.sbd.barbella.8594.sbeok.shnf - for the Dark Star alone

Runners-up would be 6-22-69 Central Park (mostly in terrible AUD, but some really cool bits), 7-11-69 (poor sound, but great Alligator jam), and 8-28-69 Family Dog (bad mix and a Garcia/Wales show, but lots of jamming). This was a season of often-sloppy relaxing and figuring out a new sound for the Dead, as they veered away from the intensity of early '69, so there's a lot of clumsy tunes this summer, but also many unique experimental shows as new things get tried out.

The 7/12/69 show is worth a mention too, especially the incredible Lovelight from the show featuring an obviously dosed Mickey Hart on a wacked rap & vocal. Bobby does a man on the street interview while Pigpen insists folks "speak into the microphone". A "must hear" version.

The Eleven ain't too shabby either!

SHIT! I thought this was a Bryan Adams thread. Damn, cuts like a knife.
